About the Show
A podcast from Slate chronicling Donald Trump’s rise to the presidency and his current administration. Journalists Virginia Heffernan, León Krauze, and Yascha Mounk talk to reporters, historians, psychiatrists, and other experts to help explain who this man is and why this is happening, right now, in the United States of America.
Virginia Heffernan talks to A.C. Valdez, editor of the Guns & America reporting initiative and former Trumpcast producer, about the way we talk about guns in the United States, how mass shootings are defined in media, strategies for de-escalating gun violence in gang situations vs. terrorism, united toxic male weirdness, and more.
Podcast production by Melissa Kaplan, with help from Merritt Jacob.
